Over the last few weeks I have gotten involved in something that seems to mean alot to me.
It's a peson that I do not know at all, but over the last weeks I have been reading the news and looking at all evidence and there is in my mind no doubt that he has been innocently jailed.
His name is Joshua French and he has been in a prison in Congo for nearly 5 year. At the moment he is really ill with Posttraumatic Stress Syndrome, and he has to sleep in the hall in the prison on a matress.He doesn't even get a bed,he sleeps among the cockroaces and rats.
This is just not right, I am a hundred percent certain that he has not been spying on Congo for Norway, he has not killed his best friend either. But no matter what, it is not the correct way to treat anyone. Everybody has a right to be treated humanely, everybody. Black or white, it doesn't matter.
It really upsets me, not just for Joshua being there as an innocent man, but all the other prisoners too. Although they DO have beds to sleep in, the prison is apparently one of the worst in the world. And I can not believe it's the way to treat anyone. I do hope the DemocraticRepublic of Congo can change their ways, see that the honest path is the right one, not just money money money.It's maybe easy for me to say,but it has to start somewhere. The human right must have a more important role in society. Also here in the west , all is not perfect. We must all strive to make the world a better place, a fairer place.
If you are interested in the case, there are several goups on Facebook,if you search for Joshua French, several groups will pop up. I did a search myself and that is how I got a bitmore involved.
FreeFrenchandMoland is the family website, it's in both English and Norwegian. Please do have a read, it's imporant stuff people.We can't just sit and wait for him to die, which will happen if he doesn't get any kind of help.
